神父講道 – 常年期第二十七週 (週五) (2015年10月9日)

恭讀聖路加福音 11:15-26

那時候,人群中有人說:「耶穌是仗賴魔王貝耳則步驅魔。」另一些人試探耶穌,向他要求一個自天而來的徵兆。耶穌知道了他們的心意,便對他們說:「凡是一國自相紛爭,必成廢墟,一家一家的敗落。如果撒殫自相紛爭,他的國如何能存立呢?因為你們說我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔。如果我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔,你們的子弟是仗賴誰驅魔呢?為此,他們將是你們的裁判者。如果我是仗賴天主的手驅魔,那麼,天主的國已來到你們中間了。幾時壯士佩帶武器,看守自己的宅舍,他的財產,必能安全。但是,如果有個比他更強的人來戰勝他,必會把他所依賴的一切武器都奪去,而瓜分他的贜物。不隨同我的,就是反對我;不同我收集的,就是分散。
「邪魔從人身上出去後,走遍乾旱之地,尋找一個安息之所,卻沒有找著;他於是說:我要回到我出來的那屋裏去。他來到後,見裏面已打掃清潔,裝飾整齊,就去帶了另外七個比自己更惡的魔鬼來,進去,住在那裏;那人後來的處境,就比先前的更壞了。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 11:15-26

15 But some of them said, “He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the prince of demons”; 16 while others, to test him, sought from him a sign from heaven. 17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls. 18 And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that I cast out demons by Beelzebul. 19 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 20 But if it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace; 22 but when one stronger than he assails him and overcomes him, he takes away his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoil. 23 He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. 24 “When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places seeking rest; and finding none he says, `I will return to my house from which I came.’ 25 And when he comes he finds it swept and put in order. 26 Then he goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first.

路11:15-26  (岳[珥] 1:13-15;2:1-2  詠9)

人群中有人說:「耶穌是仗賴魔王貝耳則步驅魔。」另一些人試探耶穌,向他要求一個自天而來的徵兆。耶穌知道了他們的心意,便對他們說:「凡是一國自相紛爭,必成廢墟,一家一家的敗落。如果撒殫自相紛爭,他的國如何能存立呢?因為你們說我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔。如果我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔,你們的子弟是仗賴誰驅魔呢?為此,他們將是你們的裁判者。如果我是仗賴天主的手驅魔,那麼,天主的國已來到你們中間了。幾時壯士佩帶武器,看守自己的宅舍,他的財產,必能安全。但是,如果有個比他更強的人來戰勝他,必會把他所依賴的一切武器都奪去,而瓜分他的贜物。不隨同我的,就是反對我;不同我收集的,就是分散。
「邪魔從人身上出去後,走遍乾旱之地,尋找一個安息之所,卻沒有找著;他於是說:我要回到我出來的那屋裡去。他來到後,見裡面已打掃清潔,裝飾整齊,就去帶了另外七個比自己更惡的魔鬼來,進去,住在那裡;那人後來的處境,就比先前的更壞了。」

 

默 想

  • 在以前猶太人的世界中,是充滿二元觀念的,善惡分明,既有天主,則必有魔王。
  • 或許這是中東人的特點,所以今天中東仍然戰火漫天,因為人心善惡太分明,便缺少了同理心。
  • 但魔王卻不這樣,它走遍世界,也可能回到舊軀殼。我們以為自己是善的,卻原來仍逃不出魔王的掌握。
  • 所以,唯有超越善惡,願意把判斷之權還給天主,我們才能脫離魔王。

恭讀聖路加福音 11:5-13

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們中間誰有一個朋友,半夜去他那裏,向他說:朋友,借給我三個餅吧!因為我的朋友行路到了我這裏,我沒有什麼可以款待他。那人從裏面回答說:不要煩擾我了!門已經關上,我的孩子同我一起在床上,我不能起來給你。我告訴你們:他縱然不為了他是朋友的緣故,而起來給他,也要因他恬不知恥地切求而起來,給他所需要的一切。
「所以,我告訴你們:你們求,必要給你們;你們找,必要找著;你們敲,必要給你們開。因為凡求的,就必得到;找的,就必找到;敲的,就必給他開。你們中間那有為父親的,兒子向他求餅,反而給他石頭呢?或是求魚,反將蛇當魚給他呢?或者求雞蛋,反將蠍子給他呢?你們縱然不善,尚且知道把好東西給你們的兒女,何況在天之父,豈不更將聖神賜與求他的人嗎?」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 11:5-13

5 And he said to them, “Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, `Friend, lend me three loaves; 6 for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; 7 and he will answer from within, `Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything’? 8 I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him whatever he needs. 9 And I tell you, Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; 12 or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
